Downtown Development Authority- Savor The Ave 2016


South Florida's Top Culinary Event Celebrates its Ninth Year on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach!

One of the hallmarks of South Florida's high season is its most celebrated culinary event: Savor the Avenue. Savor the Avenue was launched nine years ago by Delray & Boca Magazines with Delray Beach's Downtown Development Authority. Guests can experience an epic al fresco dinner table seating hundreds of people who dine on a scrumptious multicourse dinner in the middle of Downtown Delray Beach. The elegant dining table now stretches for five blocks down the middle of picturesque Atlantic Avenue. It seats more than 1,100 people, and there are typically 15-18 participating restaurants. There is a friendly competition among restaurants to outdo one another when it comes to table decor - and prizes are awarded for the top three winners of this effort. 

The event also benefits a local charity; this year a portion of all tickets sold will benefit the Delray Beach Public Library. 

Reservations are required and must be made directly through the participating Delray Beach restaurants starting February 1st.

This year, in addition to the judging panel, there will also be a People’s Choice Award granted to the restaurant with the best table décor. Be sure to vote for your favorite Savor the Avenue tablescape by uploading a picture of it to Facebook or Instagram, using #SavorPeoplesChoice and checking in to or tagging the restaurant name.
